£2010- Oh! in 2010
The Up and Under Group set out to raise £20,100 in 2010 for the children’s charity The Up and Under Foundation
It is normally this time of year that we make personal resolutions that will make us better people in the year ahead. As a company the Up and Under Group is no different.
Over the past few years we have raised money to help local youngsters do things that might otherwise be denied them due to lack of funds. This money is administered by the Up and Under Foundation. Last year company MD Andy Fewtrell and his wife Lorna raised more than £2k in sponsorship by completing two simultaneous marathons. This money helped to establish the Eric Swan Bursary.
This year we are setting a far greater challenge for the whole company. Initially we thought we could try to raise £2010 in 2010, but that seemed a bit of a small challenge for Up and Under so the goal is to raise £20100.00 in 2010. To make this a true Company effort every one of our 30 strong team has pledged to raise a sum of money during the year. In keeping with the theme the pledges are either £2.01, £20.10, £201.00 or £2010. We will be looking to have a number of events during the year that people can get involved in, more details will be announced and published on our Blog. Meanwhile if you are considering doing a challenge during the year and would like to support the Foundation we would be happy to hear from you.
